38. Sawtooth Estate Winery 2012 Classic Fly Series Cinsault Rosé, Snake River Valley, $13
Best Buy! Who knew anyone was growing Cinsault in the Snake River Valley? This was the top pink wine in the Idaho Wine Competition this fall, thanks to lovely aromas of cherry and strawberry, followed by flavors of peach, pineapple and strawberry freezer jam. It has just a bit of sweetness to round the edges. Sawtooth is one of Idaho’s oldest and largest wineries and is owned by Precept Wine in Seattle.
